A very useful textbook, this book is written in a simple style that helps to convey the idea with the easiest ways such as labeling photos. This textbook contains deeper, more realistic problems, incorporating actual dosages and requiring real critical thinking. This textbook can be a college book that helps students through using the dimensional analysis format it pioneered which help students begin with simple arithmetic, progressing to the most complex drug calculations. I purchased this textbook and I highly recommend it.
